Vertigo is an issue that needs to be emphasized because it affects a large part of the society, causes loss of workforce, and sometimes is a symptom of life-threatening diseases. The differential diagnosis of peripheral and central vertigo should be made and they should be directed to the relevant specialists. Different complaints of patients such as non-specific dizziness and imbalance can be perceived as vertigo. The etiology of vertigo, like its symptomatology, is very broad. It may develop as peripheral causes, central causes, psychiatric disorders, systemic causes, drug side effects or multifactorial causes. Vertigo is a nonspecific term that patients use to describe a variety of symptoms. The most common symptoms that can be referred to by patients as vertigo are dizziness, unsteadiness, and presyncope. Vertigo defined as the sensation of motion independent of gravity, the illusory sensation of rotational or translational motion.
